Vegan Voyage

1 comment

Cookbook author Carolyn Scott-Hamilton, aka the Healthy Voyager, can find vegan food anywhere, even in France, where butter and cheese reign supreme, and Germany, land of bratwurst.

An avid traveler, Scott-Hamilton has made scouting vegan options her day job. She blogs and records online TV shows about her findings at healthyvoyager.com. But Scott-Hamilton knows not everyone has the luxury of traveling internationally.

So she's created vegan versions of popular dishes from 20 countries — the U.K., Spain, Greece, Russia, and more — that are featured in her new cookbook, The Healthy Voyager's Global Kitchen. Now vegans (and the veg-curious) can enjoy animal-free versions of Russian dzyad (a Pop-Tart-like apple pastry) and buttery French croissants without ever stepping onto an airplane. There's even a recipe for a vegan spinach soufflé, a typically egg-heavy dish. Many recipes are also gluten-free, soy-free, and low-fat.

"I'm Columbian, and I grew up in Miami, so the cookbook includes dishes I grew up eating. And there are the things I couldn't eat when traveling, like I could never eat real Wienerschnitzel," Scott-Hamilton says. "People can use the book to delve into dishes they've never heard of or to find foods they've been missing [since going vegan]."

Booksigning by Carolyn Scott-Hamilton at the Booksellers at Laurelwood, Tuesday, January 3rd, 6 to 9 p.m.
